Parrots/Should I give away my bird?


Gerard Lee wrote at 2013-11-15 08:40:45
When my brother-in-law passed away about 7 years ago , MILO, his pet Meyers Parrot had nowhere to go. Obviously, there were plenty of offers from people who knew nothing about birds. I, an animal and bird lover all my life (70 years and a retiree) insisted on taking MILO. Milo has a ring on his leg but I have no papers as such. I know that a Meyers Parrot does require a permit. (!!??) MILO is a beautiful bird (turquoise, grey and yellow) and appears to be a female. Loverly nature! Lives in a large cage in the lounge.  No children around. I would love to adopt your Meyers Parrot.

I love helping give advice on the different parrot species, as well as their care (diet, housing, ect...). I also love helping people find the right kind of parrot for them, or help people (and their birds) work through behavior problems and things of that nature. I`m open to any non-emergency questions, and if I can`t help you, hopefully I will be able to direct you to someone who can. (or maybe online articles and such). The species of parrots I have first hand experience with are: cockatiels, lovebirds, conures, budgies (aka: parakeets), parrolets, macaws, cockatoos, Amazons, Pionus and Afican Greys.


I've volunteered for Mickaboo Cockatiel Rescue since 2000. I volunteered for a wild-bird rescue center for 3 years. I've been the avian expert at the pet store since 2001 and was certified as an avian specialist by PIJAC (Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council) in 2004. I've also been owned by parrots since 1993! :)
